Entry price for loaders?

It wouldn't get very much use commercially in my business, but sometimes I think it'd be nice to have a loader around for moving mulch, topdressing materials, etc at my acreage and a few accounts who need that stuff.

What are some of the choices around in low-cost lighter duty machines capable of moving materials and ideally having a pto for attachments? The used stuff I find looks beyond the point where I'd want to deal with it in terms of breakdowns and little things that go wrong. I can fix a mower, or move it to where someone can. But these things are heavy and I can just see a used one rusting at the bottom of a hill because some little part broke.

I'd get a mini skid steer.

I love my Vermeer S600TX, and the endless attachments for it.
